Leading Payroll and Human Capital Management (HCM) software provider, Ascender, has been awarded two medals in the HCM and Payroll System categories at the HRD Service Provider Awards

The HRD Service Provider Awards recognise the best HR vendors in the industry across eight key specialist areas. Vendor submissions are judged on their overview of the business or product, insights on their point of difference along with data on market share and growth from the past twelve months. An independent panel of HR professionals from a range of industries then vote for the best submissions.  

“These awards recognise the impressive work produced by our teams across APAC,” Andrew Wilson, Ascender, CEO, says. “At Ascender, we remain committed to implementing technology solutions that help support our customer’s employees in the most effective way possible. I am extremely proud of my team’s continued efforts to provide the best payroll and HCM solution to our customers; ultimately helping them put their people first.”

Ascender’s payroll system aims to reduce payroll time and complexity, ensuring employees are paid in a timely manner and responsibilities are carried out properly. It recognises the unique industry expertise of each business, and incorporates this thinking into building strategies and delivery modes that cater to different organisational needs. 

Ascender customers also have access to a proven partner ecosystem, with a growing number of applications and service providers, to address specific employee pain points and drive employee engagement. 

Ascender’s HCM solution, Ascender PeopleStreme, equips organisations with easy solutions that target the day-to-day challenges of HR departments through 22 modules covering erecruitment, onboarding, performance management, learning and development, workforce planning and exit analytics. Organisations can also seek advice from Ascender’s team of HR and change management experts when selecting fit-for-purpose HCM modules that guarantee more effective outcomes.

“We are honoured to have received these prestigious awards,” Michael McNamara, Ascender Executive Director, says. “With Ascender, we see a significant opportunity to offer our customers a unique and powerful integrated all-in-one payroll and HCM solution. I would like to thank all our clients for their continued trust and positive feedback for Ascender that’s reflected in these awards.”

This follows Ascender being selected as the Gold winner for “Best HR Tech – Payroll Solution” at the HRM Asia’s Readers’ Choice Awards earlier this month, celebrating the best and brightest HR service providers throughout Asia. These awards continue to position Ascender as an innovative leader in the payroll and HR industry throughout the Asia Pacific region.
